Len Thayer & AAUP Grants Application Now Open for 2017-2018 Academic Year

Do you remember? The Leonard “Len” Thayer Grants Program started in the early 1980s. The CWU Foundation’s grants program has provided numerous awards to CWU departments and programs to support the activities that support our students and community.  The program was officially named the Len Thayer Grants Program in 1998 to honor a long-time donor and member of the CWU Foundation board. 

The Central Washington University Foundation Len Thayer Grant Program and the American Association of University Professors Grant are now open for application.
